Journey to the #BrightEdge of the world . . .

May 4, 2017

She captured your heart with THE SNOW CHILD – now Eowyn Ivey has returned to once more whisk us from these rainy shores to the sublime land of Alaska. TO THE BRIGHT EDGE OF THE WORLD takes the stunning landscape of Eowyn’s debut novel as its backdrop, but this time with an even wider scope of adventure and a timeless romance at its heart.

When published in hardback last year, BRIGHT EDGE received some staggering reviews:

‘A clever, ambitious novel’ The Sunday Times

‘The precision of such descriptions of the natural world ground the novel in a gritty verisimilitude that then allows Ivey to build a fanciful, daring imaginative edifice: the meticulous realism of the foundation allows the fabulous elements of her fiction to soar’ Guardian

‘Absorbing… their love for each other is beautifully renderedThe Times

‘Absorbing and highly imaginative… Ivey, clearly a writer of prodigious talent, effortlessly knits these elements together to create an utterly enchanting read. Part intrepid adventure, part deeply affecting romance, this first-class novel is, at its heart, a love letter to the ‘vast and cold beauty’ of the last frontier’ Daily Express

‘A stunning and intriguing novel combining the epic adventurous sweep of Alaska with minutely beautifully observed details – the reader finishes it wiser and richer’ Rosamund Lupton

If I read another novel this year that I love as much as this I will be entirely surprised. This is a very special book indeed and Eowyn Ivey is an incredibly gifted writer, bringing to us all the wonder, beautiful strangeness and fragility of the Alaska she loves’ Kate Atherton

Absorbing… a superior page turner’ Daily Mail

Beautifully lyricalSunday Express

Now in its stunning paperback livery, do not miss the journey this wonderful novel will take you on.

    I loved this book which ended, for a while, my search for a “really good, different” book. I enjoyed the way it was written in the form of letters by the main characters and the Colonel’s diary entries. A real page turner.
    Thanks to Eowyn for again writing such a memorable book.
